Brand new from the homie Chance Fischer directed by Soul Live Media AKA Smoothmatic AKA Rob Roby. I haven’t posted too much hip hop on the blog recently but I couldn’t let this video slide. Every time I see Chance Fischer on the mic, I am impressed with his ability to draw his audience closer to him and his style. He can do it all: rhyme, write, perform, you name it. And don’t get me started on the body of work Rob Roby is putting together in the RVA hip hop community. He gets the job done. Check out the RVA images in the video. I think shooting at the Cathedral was perfect for Chance. Also the B-Roll shots on Monument Avenue were a great selection for the duo. I hope they continue to work together in the future. There is no telling how far they can push the envelope in RVA’s hip hop community.
S/O to the homie Noah-O. RVA, in general, has been dealing with a lot of grief lately…good people leaving us too early. Noah-O hooks up with the homie Taylor Whitelow to remember Kleph Dollaz. The video is directed by another Grindaholic Rob Roby (Soul Live Media). In tough times – I love how these brothers are channeling their energy.
It’s going down tonight at The Camel – Beat Battle IX. Tonight’s event will be in memory of the late Kleph Dollaz and will feature performances from Yankee, Chance Fisher, and Noah-O. I first covered the Charged Up Ent. founder Noah-O last year at RVA Music Fest and continued to photograph his camp periodically throughout the year. What I’m sharing today is special. I have long been on record praising one of the best directors/videographers in the central Virginia area – Rob Roby AKA Smoothmatic AKA Soul Live Media. This brother is always on his job and always delivering (check out his vimeo page). Earlier this year he went in-dept with Noah-O to bring this exclusive Behind the Music story. I think today is great day to highlight this piece.
